Thread: New Frame Pack

  1. #1

    Question New Frame Pack

    Has anyone tried the Alaska Range Outdoor Gear frame pack? I heard the harness is a Barney's. Any truth to that?

    What do you think about the bag material?
    How does the Sheep Hunter compare to Barney's Carnivore/Hunter combo?

    Thanks..........Al

    I have looked these over extensively. The harness is not a Barney's and in fact is quite different. The bag material on an AR is similar to a micro suede as opposed to a cordura or nylon/kevlar material on a Barney's. When it comes to cubic inches (room/space), the two pack comparisons you mention would be very close.

    Al,

    For the record, I don't own either one, but I've looked over both extensively, and my opinion is the Alaska is not in the same league as Barney's packs.
    I will be purchasing a Barney pack before Spring.

    I did the same thing and it became clear that the barneys pack was in a higher class.
